What is your biggest criticism of the candidate you plan on voting for?

57 posts in this topic

The tinderbox, like most of America, is pretty divided politically, so I want to hear your own complaints against the person you plan on voting for. Presidential or gubernatorial. I am not locked in 100% yet, but I am leaning towards Obama and McCrory.

Biggest Criticism of Obama: Extending the Patriot Act and signing the 2012 NDAA with provisions about indefinite detention without trial. Pretty sure Obama campaigned against the Patriot Act (maybe not) and I feel the government is encroaching on personal rights with both of these policies.

Biggest Criticism of McCrory: Advocated for Amendment 1. I haven't done as much research on the gubernatorial candidates, but I know McCrory was in favor of Amendment 1 which I wholly oppose.

Romney - Mormon book salesmen knocking on my door shaking their behinds trying to sell me the Book if Mormon.

His stance on abortion and gay marriage as well. Government should stay out of individual/religion based decisions. But, Obama is a joke and sucks major donkey ass so Romney is the only choice.

Obama: Tries too hard to please everyone when he should realize the GOP will never work with him no matter what and act accordingly.

McCrory: He supports voter I.D. laws, which I oppose very strongly. This may yet prevent me from voting for him, I honestly haven't decided yet.

Romney- Not a fan of some of his mixed stances but given Obumas proven track record of massive and complete failure this can be easily overlooked.

McCrory- Can't say that I disagree with any of his policys, Besides Bev Purdue is terrible.

State politics are of a smaller importance, My distaste for Purdue is mostly for her ruining the bar scene with her anti smoking laws...

And yes I do vote Republican 90% of the time as I have no love for the left.

Romney has discussed increasing the defense budget to 4% of GDP, half a percent higher than it is scheduled to be in the 2012/2013 budget. With the war in Iraq over and Afghanistan winding down, 3.5 is probably sufficient.

I'm a republican but will probably vote for Obama this year. Bottom line is when you vote, choose the candidate that you feel best satisfies your most important concerns. Don't vote because of your party affiliation.

I believe if you vote for Obama, our economy slides further back and if you vote for Romney, we slide further back as a society.

BTW... who is McRory?

    • It's because you, unlike the op and the posters above are sane.
    • Fornette is much more talented than Davis.  Adrian Peterson is more like it even if AD is shifter and Fornette is bigger more powerful.    Now, just wondering if Fornette will be hurt like AD has been much of the time.
    • who gives a poo about character development? i was 3-5 years old. i only care for the nostalgia. it's going to be hard to inject that into a show that was so obviously geared towards children. it would be like sesame street spending a whole season having elmo ponder his existence in the universe and his own sexuality.    plus most of the main cast got replaced by the third season. i should know. i have a green ranger and white ranger beeper. i was not watching it by the time they switched him to the red ranger. but i was such a big fuging fan of the green ranger. i wanted long hair like he had at that time. yeeeaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh
